04 Nov Post-Gaming with Naturecan CBD – what does the research suggest?
After a long gaming session, getting enough rest is fundamental to the quality of your life and recovery. It contributes to memory formation, muscle repair, maintaining a strong immune system, and so much more.
Experts recommend seven to nine hours of sleep every night for adults to feel energised and healthy the next day. However, according to data published in The Guardian, approximately 35% of adults in the UK sleep less than the recommended minimum of 7 hours each night. According to research, This number can be lower if you are gaming late into the evening, as is common with most gamers.
There are many strategies you can use to wind down after playing, including journaling, meditation, improving your sleep environment, and more recently, incorporating the potential benefits of CBD Oil into your after-game routine.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the main intoxicating component of the cannabis plant, CBD is not intoxicating, so it will not make the user ‘high’. On the contrary, numerous studies have shown that CBD offers a range of potential health benefits.
When consumed, CBD influences the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a network of receptors and transmitters located throughout the body. The ECS is responsible for maintaining a balance between our body’s cardiovascular, nervous, and immune system functions, and regulates many vital functions, such as sleep, mood, pain and appetite.
CBD interacts with this network of receptors by imitating the body’s own naturally-produced endocannabinoids (“endogenous cannabinoids”). In this way, it supports the function of the ECS and helps the body to better adapt to changes in the environment.
CBD & Gaming | What does the research say?
It’s good news for gamers! Studies have found that CBD may help to aid the onset of sleep and help with occasional sleeplessness. This is due to the way in which CBD interacts with various receptors and the endocannabinoid system.
What are the potential considerations of post-gaming CBD?
